TECHNO-DETERMINISM

 

I am not sure where I read the term, but found the definition interesting:

The belief that technology makes us smarter or dumber.

I know that my children’s color laser printed, PowerPoint created school projects are about 1000% more complex and detailed at a much younger age than my Encyclopedia Britannica based, hand written projects. Technology has definitely changed that and I would wager that they know a lot more than I did at that age simply due to exposure to information.

Smarter? Dumber? Not sure that is the right element to debate. More informed, for sure.
